Lithium-Sulfur technology offers an outstanding specific energy due to the high specific capacity of sulfur as a conversion material. However, the weight of prototype cells is still dominated by its inactive components.
Obtaining information on a battery state of charge is key to enabling a safe and efficient charging and discharging process for Lithium-Sulfur batteries.
Understanding Lithium-Sulphur (Li-S) cell performances under different configurations and temperature environments is crucial for the design of batteries that are compatible with space applications.
Dr. David Ainsworth, the OXIS CTO, describes the new ECLIPSE project to develop a lithium-sulfur cell for space applications.
After an exciting year with tangible progress, the ECLIPSE consortium has set a date for the annual project review.
The ECLIPSE website has launched! As a publicly funded project, ECLIPSE is keen on involving professionals and interested members of the public alike.
With the goal of developing the next generation of spacecraft batteries, the ECLIPSE consortium has kicked-off its efforts with its first workshop in the capital of Europe, Brussels
